Advantages of a fitted cabinet

It’s a common thing every day, we browse on the internet for ideas or something that will stimulate our imaginative dream of fitted furniture. Whatever the style, colour or appearance, one thing that we all forget is using those empty spaces to benefit us.

Although wardrobes that are standalone such as chests of drawers, wardrobes, and clothes dressers might be the less expensive option, they usually are affixed to rooms and seldom be able to sit flush to the wall and may occupy precious floor space which could be utilized for storage purposes.

Below, we provide several examples on how storage units can help you maximize the amount of space you have available and allow you to enjoy a clear, uncluttered and practical home.

Loft Conversion Units & Angled Ceiling Storage

One of the most obvious ways to make the most of storage space is to utilize the lower sloping ceilings as well as coves for fitting drawer units and fitted cabinets, and built-in shelving.

In this case, we created and built custom drawers that expand in depth when space permits, not just increasing the space that is not being used but also completely altering the appearance and feeling of the space. It’s a gorgeous tidy room that is free of empty space, and extremely useful storage units.

In the image below, you will see that all of the space has been maximized to create a neat and uncluttered appearance, but it is also an extremely contemporary and invisible storage space. The most often neglected in houses is the smaller spaces that are located towards the stairs down below.

This is an installation of the full-length sliding shoe rack, ideal for those shoes and wellies you’d like to keep away from view. The drawers that are fitted and cabinets are designed using a push-to-open mechanism, which gives them the contemporary look that our customer was looking for.

Storage Around Doors, Windows & Appliances

In the process of designing your dream home, the most often neglected aspect is the possibility of putting storage units in the vicinity of doors, windows , and other static appliances. The space around these fixtures can be a bit awkward and difficult to imagine an ideal solution. However, the process of creating custom furniture allows us to create units that work in any space.

The wall is a fitted wardrobe in the shaker style that we constructed around the entryway to an ensuite bathroom. We made use of the entire floor-to-ceiling area by creating sections of different dimensions and heights, and a shelving as well as hanging space, and drawers. The custom-designed unit is set close to the wall, so that it doesn’t encroach on the floor space.

Shelving Units between Walls

It’s not a singular situation, many of us have partition walls that separate rooms but do not know the possibilities for storage that is that is available. Here is an excellent illustration of how to maximize space by using walls themselves to build an entirely custom shelving unit that can maximize storage space. In this instance, we designed and constructed an shelving unit that was built as a partition wall that is between a staircase as well as an external wall.
